    I’m creating a new site (www.performanceacademyltd.com) which I’m creating custom pages for.
    So far I’ve edited the header and footer files, created a new page (/home) and pasted my content onto it.

    However, I still have the Page Title showing up.

    I’ve done it once before on my own wordpress blog but can’t remember how – and I remember it took me a while to search to find an answer!

    Can anyone point me to the quick fix to remove or hide the Title from this page?

    Thanks

    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress 3.2 theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. Create a child theme for your changes. Once your child theme is active, we should be able to help with the customisation.

    Ah sorry – I have taken a copy of the twenty eleven theme then edited the CSS and changed the placeholder picture.

    Should I still follow that guide as above?

    Is the modified theme running as a completely new theme with a different name? If so, we’d need to be able to see the site – not a holding page.

    Yes it is.

    Sorry, my mistake

    That would help!

    You site doesn’t appear to be using any of the CSS from the theme!

    Correct

    So – how do I get rid of the title?

    The simplest option would be to hide it via CSS.

    Do you know to which item I need to apply the display:none; style to?

    I’ve tried it on a couple but they don’t seem to hide it

    Try using Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of work.

    Confused here, I’ve done that with Firebug and set the following in my css

    . entry-title h1 { display:none;}
    . entry-header h1 { display:none; }

    Yet it’s still showing the Title?

    On what page of the site are these titles?

    On every page that I create.

    It’s on my home page (www.performanceacademyltd.com/blog)

    See where it says ‘HOME’ at the top below the logo.

    Well, if you added that CSS to your site’s style.css (not the theme’s style.css file), it’s not being loaded – which explains why the title is still visible.

    Ah, silly little thing.

    there was a space in my . entry-title h1 css tags.

    changed to
    .entry-title h1 { display:none;}
    .entry-header h1 { display:none; }

    Now all working

    Thank you !

    1. Download and install companion plugin
    2. in your dashboard, go to appearance -> companion
    3. this will bring up CSS Override Editor
    4. enter the following code and save:

    .entry-title
    {
    display: none !important;
    }

    WORKS FOR ME .. I would rather use this process … updates will not overwrite my custom CSS. ~peace
